According to Peter Doocy, during the talk with Bret Baier, he told that he was not aware of Joe Biden’s comment until it was reported to him by other reporters outside the venue. The statement said by Peter is:
“My reaction was delayed because, as you can see, the Biden staff were ushering us out. They were telling us, thank you, time to go. It was not until we went to the basement and then outside and then back to the press room that somebody said, ‘hey, did you hear with the president said about you?’”
Later on Monday, Peter said, “within about an hour of that exchange, he called my cell phone and said ‘it is nothing personal, pal.’” According to Peter Doocy, Joe Biden asked him to “clear the air”.
